One requirement of this fellowship: the work the student does must contribute to the advancement of knowledge in pediatric, child-clinical, school, educational and developmental psychopathology.

Scholarship Overview

The Munsterberg Koppitz Fellowship was created to provide financial support for innovative research and programs that advance the ability of psychology to aid human potential and improve the lives of humans well into the future. This fellowship is intended only for doctoral students.

The application packet must have the student’s curriculum vitae, a proposal abstract that addresses the criteria, which has been outlined by the American Psychological Foundation and a letter of recommendation from the student’s adviser that includes verification of the nomination criteria listed. This letter of recommendation should cover one page maximum.

Scholarship Requirements

The criteria for potential nominees include:
